Adaptations to prey base in the hypercarnivorous leopard cat Prionailurus bengalensis

Abstract:

Investigating biogeographical variations in diet composition can help understand the adaptability and generalism of species. Although the dietary adaptability of omnivorous mesocarnivores is well established, far less work has explored how more specialist hypercarnivores optimise their diets. By reviewing 11 studies of the leopard cat (Prionailurus bengalensis), we quantitatively examined how dietary composition varies over the wide range of biomes they occupy in Asia. Specifically, we contra...
